BJP- RSS rule like the Nazi’s has destroyed democracy, rule of law, principles of natural justice, which all need to be looked into by Western Democracies and President Biden. Simranjit Singh Mann

Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Army’s Northern Command has become quite notorious for wrong doings and indiscipline, though it faces two fronts-Islamic Pakistan and Communist China. Our party recalls that one of the Army Commanders of this Command who later rose to the post of Army Chief was indicted for corrupt practices. However, the new Northern Command Chief who exposed this scandal was posted out to the Central Command. This happened during the Manmohan Singh Congress regime. We are also aware that in the Augusta Helicopter Scandal though the previous Air Chief Marshal Tyagi has been arrested but the other high ups like Mr. Narayanan, S.P.G’S Director Bharat Vir Wanchoo, late Premier Vajpayee’s Principal Secretary Brijesh Misra’s relative in Italy, the genocidaire Kamal Nath’s son and nephew are also in the jam but are going scot free. Earlier in 2005 seven hundred pages from the Naval War Room were stolen, including the Navy’s plans for the next 20 years. Commander Ravi Shankaran was caught but the nephew of the then Naval Chief Arun Prakash is still at large and has not been arrested. In the present espionage case of the Northern Command we are skeptical whether this case will end up with a clue to the higher echelons of the Northern Command involved. The Northern Command is also in the lime light for the excesses it is committing on the Kashmiri Muslim under the beastly and un-constitutional law AFSPA (Armed forces special powers) under which the armed forces have unlimited powers to kill, maim, torture, molest, rape, kidnap, abduct and detain a Kashmiri indefinitely, all with impunity. The Supreme Court which is the watchdog of the Constitution is mum over this law though it contravenes Article 21 of the Constitution. Our party is of the opinion that the extremist ultra nationalist BJP- RSS Union Government led by Premier Narinder Modi has destabalised Kashmir state for the very reason that it has a majority Muslim population. Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution which gave Kashmir a special status have been abrogated. The Kashmir state has as a state been dissolved and turned into an Union Territory governed directly by the Union Government in Delhi. There is no legislature and hence no elected legislator, as a result the Upper House of Parliament in Delhi has no member of parliament from Kashmir as it is the state legislators who elect members to the Upper House or the Council of States or the Rajya Sabha. It is clear from this that the Jack Boots of the Northern Command rule the roost in Kashmir unhindered by any checks and balances. Lately several diplomats from various countries posted in Delhi visited Kashmir. We wonder whether they reported the absolute annulment of democracy in Kashmir. It would be worth mentioning that democracy in the Hindu Indian state functions without the rule of law and principles of natural justice. We have a National Human Rights Commission in Delhi but we have not seen a trace of its presence in this unfortunate state as it is ruled as depicted by the barbaric law AFSPA (Armed forces special powers act). We hope that with the thaw in relations with Islamic Pakistan and the Hindu state, a semblance of democratic and Constitutional order will begin to prevail in Kashmir. It must be noted that the Sikhs have a great interest in Kashmir as this province was wrested from Afghanistan in 1819 by the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799-1849) and made an integral part of the Sikh Empire. Unfortunately Premier Modi has abolished the Punjabi language which was widely spoken and used in Kashmir after the Constitutional coup on 05th August 2019 by the BJP- RSS Union Government in Delhi. The policies of this BJP- RSS Union Government are totally racial, communal and totalitarian much like the Nazi regime in Germany. The Nazi party symbol the Swastaka is shared by the marjoritarian Hindu Indian state-
. Like the Nazi state, the Hindu Indian state has detained 19.60 lack Muslims in Assam in detention camps without trial or without the right to habeas corpse much to the pain of the new Democratic President Joe Biden who wants to usher in a period and a new dawn of democracy and safeguard of Human Rights. We are aware that Western democracies are clamouring for safeguard of Human Rights in Communist China’s Hong Kong, Tibet and Sinkiang. But they should take a look at South Asia where thousands of farmers collected on the borders of Delhi are crying for justice since November 2020. The minorities, Schedule Castes and Advasis or Tribal’s suffer the pain and torture of the rightwing Hindu Jingoistic state of the BJP- RSS. We hope Western Democracy will begin to put their foot down on this barbaric rule of the BJP- RSS led by Premier Narinder Modi. No one is safe from the midnight knock.
